Bosch Introduces Dialer Capture Module to Offer Internet Communications on Alarm Panels

Fairport, New York -- Bosch Security Systems, a full-line manufacturer of high-quality security systems and components, now enables Internet communications for virtually any conventional alarm panel with its new C900V2 Dialer Capture Module. This new capability means that alarms are dispatched automatically over an installed high speed Internet connection and do not require a land-based telephone line. With this new module, Bosch maintains full alarm panel operability for Bosch panels as well as panels manufactured by a wide variety of vendors. In addition, no modifications to the installed panel are necessary so the panel operates exactly as in the past, with no new programming or codes to learn.

Bosch has developed the C900V2 in response to two technology trends gaining popularity in the United States: (1) many households and businesses are switching away from land-line telephones in favor of cellular telephones and (2) a rising number of households and businesses have installed high speed Internet or broadband connections. By eliminating the need for a land-line, Bosch lets people select their telephone technology independent of their fire or security alarm system's requirements, thus potentially lowering expenses.

The C900V2 uses Bosch's innovative NetCom technology to accept analog signals from a conventional alarm panel, digitizes the information including user numbers and zone numbers, then formats the data for fast Internet transmission. NetCom also maintains a constant "heartbeat" status signal with the central station, improving on the usual daily or weekly handshake signal used by most panels.
